Jan Boogaerts of the Belgian team described the unexpected thrill of winning a Reining medal for the first time. " This is beyond our wildest dreams. We came in here with the idea of fighting for a top 5, maybe if we were really lucky maybe getting bronze but silver is awesome."
Individual Reining competition starts on Tuesday at the Alltech Games. See the schedule here.
